Charlotte Premium Outlets
Love the Charlotte Premium Outlets! 4 stars though because parking is a giant headache on the weekends. Plan to go early for less stress and fewer crowds or go during the week (I never make it out there though M-F). They have a great selection of outlet stores with sales regularly. By far the busiest store here is the Nike Outlet (understandable). One of my favorite stores is the Beef Jerky Outlet - for the local jams, jelly, and honey. Also check the website ahead of time, sometimes stores post additional coupons. Another reason for 4 stars: There are not tons of places to eat here, while it is an outside mall there is no true outside dining or restaurants (they have a small food court, a pretzel shop, and a Starbucks).
Typical outlet malls, as this company is skilled at attracting the "right" stores. Nothing unusual about this one, parking is typically an issue, and crowds can be heavy on certain days. If you have been to other outlet malls of this type, the layout should feel familiar, as well as the stores themselves. Premium,says it all.
This outlet is relatively small but has all the major retail stores. There is no cover between each of the retail stores besides a small awning here and there, so if it's snowing or raining it's not the best place to go if you don't come prepared. The food court is incredibly small for the sizing of the outlet but the selections are great. All in all, this strip mall is small in size but big in the amount of stores packed into such a little area.
Charlotte Premium Outlet Mall has a lot of options and variety when it comes to their stores. Some stores are true outlet stores while others are just regular stores. There should be another coffee bar because the one they have is always busy. The restrooms are easily accessible and always clean! If you have some time to explore I recommend Charlotte Premium Outlet Mall!
Love all of the store options! You can always find a good deal here. Best shopping venue in Charlotte.
